Not all 3d printing at school is for part of the BOSTE framework. Modfab were privileged to help a young fashion designer Demetra Kakopieros from Sydney take her designs for the catwalk to new and interesting heights.
Demetra already has a great reputation in the industry as a self starter who knows what she wants. When she approached Modfab, it was for an amazing and truly awesome task by anyone’s standards. Namely, to print 1700 spikes in varying length, diameter and size.
It was a massive job but oh so worth it. The photos above are one of many photos from Demetra’s collection where she embraces 3D printing technology in fashion design.
Her work was showcased at the Runway 2015, Ultimo TAFE Sydney Institute of Fashion. It attracted such attention and accolades that it also went on to be featured in the coveted Student Fashion Design Showcase of 2016. This show brings together the best work from the best fashion schools in Sydney for a spectacular gallery show experience at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum.
So striking and popular was her work, Demetra even took this application for 3d printing at school to the press.
The fashion show in question featuring Modfab’s 3d printed spikes was covered by The Daily Telegraph where they spoke about Demetra’s rise from student to museum exhibitor to interning with one of the world’s top fashion designers, Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen.
3d printing at schools, it’s application to medical technology and the startup world, business use, manufacturing and even it’s use in art and during fashion shows is something that makes all the work we put into Modfab worthwhile.
We were truly humbled by the opportunity to be part of such an innovative and driven future great of the Australian fashion industries early steps. We wish Demetra all the best and look forward to tracking the rise of her career.
